Producer Alfredo Bini had registered the Satyricon title in When Fellini and his producer Alberto Grimaldi started work on their film, Bini contracted Gian Luigi Polidoro to direct his own version. This was in keeping with his original intention of creating a profound sense of estrangement throughout the film. While recuperating from a debilitating illness in , Fellini reread Petronius and was fascinated by the missing parts, the large gaps between one episode and the next. Other original sequences include a nymphomaniac in a desert caravan whose despondent husband pays Ascyltus and Encolpius to couple with her, and an hermaphrodite worshipped as a demigod at the Temple of Ceres. Though the two protagonists, Encolpius and Ascyltus, appear throughout, the characters and locations surrounding them change unexpectedly.

Satyricon was one of the few adaptations helmed by Fellini during his career, based on the fragmented novel of the same title by Petronius. Described as one of "the most profoundly homosexual movie in all history," the story tells the picaresque journey of a former gladiator, who is in search of his boy lover.
Nino Rota composed one of his most unusual scores for the film, evoking barbaric rhythms and ancient-sounding instruments to underscore the colorful visual cacophony of the film. Although the score had been released previously on CD included in a compilation of "Fellini-Rota" in , now out-of-print , those issue were produced from LPs sources, whereas this CD has been mastered from the first generation stereo master tapes, recently discovered in the vaults of EMI Italy.
Roma is a more personal project from Fellini, who creates a lively portrayal of the city through several memorable if barely related vignettes. By showing different aspects of the Italian capitol from different eras, Fellini creates an enjoyable mosaic which discusses his first trip to Rome as a child, his discovery of the city at the age of 18 and meta-trip during which he is making a film about Rome. Although the five Rota tracks were re-recording in stereo, these tracks were not available for inclusion on this CD.
Still, you get to hear all the complete Rota score recorded for the film in the best currently possible sound quality restored and mastered by Claudio Fuiano.
